Are linen shirts meant to be worn with a necktie (say, under a seersucker blazer)? Or, is a more traditional cotton shirt the better choice in this style situation? Thanks.

Thanks for the replies and welcome. I have the following linen shirt from Brooks Brothers:Originally Posted by wmarson
That shirt is kind of borderline. What I meant by 'substantial' is the stiffness of the collar band and collar. With that shirt, you might be able to wear a lightweight tie like a cotton knit, but it won't support a heavy silk tie. I think that one is more intended to be worn open collar and without a tie.Originally Posted by j
